Call to ban on polyethene import

LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry has urged the Federal Board of Revenue to help stop smuggling of Plastic Moulding Compound from Iran by land route.

The LCCI President Irfan Qaiser Sheikh was talking to a delegation of Plastic Importers and Traders Association led by the Chairman of the Association Sheikh Mohammad Ayub here on Wednesday. He said that the authorities concerned should immediately ban import of Polyethene and Polyproplene from Iran via land route from any border of Pakistan as at present these products are available in the local market at Rs 20/kg below the imported price that is very damaging for the local businessmen.

He said that chamber would extend full cooperation to the Federal Board of revenue if it initiates a strict action against such black sheep.
